Lil Wayne and Drake are fighting back after a judge’s recent ruling has left them on the hook for over $400,000 for missing a concert last year. In new court filings obtained by TMZ, the Young Money duo is claiming they aren't responsible for the missed show because they were never even told about it.

Imperial Entertainment Group won the judgment, totaling $432,337.50, alleging that Wayne and Drake were no-shows at an event where they agreed to perform. In the rappers' rebuttal, however, they say they were never told about the gig, never signed any contracts and were never even summoned to defend themselves in court.

In their own filing, Weezy and Drizzy are asking the court to reverse its ruling and free them of the $400k-plus burden on the grounds IEG used an unauthorized third party — Melanzh Enterprise — to book them.

This recent court battle is the latest conflict the YMCMB stars are involved in. As previously reported, Wayne and Drake were the alleged targets of Pusha T’s fiery diss song, “Exodus 23:1,” which hit the Internet last week. Pusha has since released an accompanying video for the record.
